Book Description
This volume consists of three pieces by amitav Ghosh. The first, dancing in Cambodia, begins with a deft evocation of the first ever visit to Europe by a troupe of Cambodian dancers, in 1906. their performances in Marseilles and Paris were received ecstatically and inspired Rodin to do a series of celebrated sketches. When they left .. I thought they left.. I thought they had taken away the beauty of the world wrote Rodin. In 1993 the author visited Cambodia, a land ravaged by the Pol Pot years from 1975 to 1978 and which has been in almost ceaseless turmoil thereafter. Amongst ceaseless turmoil thereafter. Amongst other things, ht met members of Pol Pot`s family and travlled to the village where he was born. Amitav Ghosh`s insights into Pol Pot`s background, the impact of his brutal regime, and the importance of dance in Cambodia even when the country was reduced to near destitution, provide us an illumining and deeply moving account.
